Travel Soccer at SMSA

Travel Soccer at SMSA

   SMSA is a competitive travel soccer club for U9 and above players participating in the Central Penn Youth Soccer League (CPYSL), a member of the Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association (EPYSA).

     Many people fear that a travel program is too competitive and is driven by a “winning is everything attitude” that will impact players. Our goal at SMSA is to teach young soccer players to love the game but also foster growth on and off the field. We will strive to provide an environment that fosters quality growth for our young soccer players by focusing on key ingredients of player development, such as technical and tactical understanding, quality coaching, physical preparation, psychological development; while also contributing to the personal development of good sportsmanship. The teaching of good sportsmanship offers an ideal opportunity for any athlete to develop life skills such as character, teamwork, honor and fair play, excellence and hard work, discipline, overcoming adversity and failure, resiliency and perseverance, joy and humility, respect, maturity, unselfishness, responsibility, goal setting, planning, citizenship and the importance of developing a competitive spirit. Please, know that at SMSA and in the CPYSL there is all degrees of competitive travel soccer from beginners to the elite soccer player.  

        Travel soccer is for players (and their families) interested in developing their abilities beyond the recreational level, as travel soccer requires a much greater level of commitment.  Each player is expected to dedicate the time and effort necessary to continually improve his or her individual skills while contributing to their team. Travel soccer requires playing games outside the club in a CPYSL division with home matches at South Middleton Parks- South Middleton and Spring Meadows and with travel to away matches against other clubs in the central Pennsylvania area.  Generally speaking, away games are within a 45 minute drive, although there are a few exceptions as the CPYSL league extends from Williamsport to the Maryland line. There is could also be travel to local, regional or out-of-state tournaments depending on the interests of the parents, coaches and players.

Players will need shin guard, cleats, appropriate sized ball and to purchase a uniform kit. Thank you to our sponsor -Faulkner- SMSA travel uniforms will stay the same until Fall of 2020.
